Surinamese habanero chilis ready to sell.

The habanero chile (Capsicum chinense Jacquin) (sometimes incorrectly spelled "habaero") is one of the most intensely spicy species of chili peppers of the Capsicum genus. Unripe habaneros are green, and they color as they mature. Common colors are orange and red, but white, brown, and pink are also seen. Typically a ripe habanero is 2–6 centimeters (1–2ス in) long. More on Wikipedia

Most habaneros will rate between 200,000 and 300,000 Scoville units. It means they are very, very hot. They can give unbearable burn feeling if you touch to cut, chopped pieces even by naked hand. You can find a whole or few chopped pieces mostly in all Surinamese dish.

The Scoville scale is a measure of the hotness or piquancy of a chili pepper, as defined by the amount of capsaicin, (a chemical compound which stimulates nerve endings in the skin) present.

Some hot sauces use their Scoville rating in advertising as a selling point.

Many cheers you to all and have a nice, wonderful week end.
